We spend most of our week at work, focused on projects and deadlines and interacting with our coworkers. It’s imperative to make sure your employees are not only thriving in the work setting, but also in other areas that impact their lives.
Here are a few tips on how to promote overall wellbeing in the workplace:
Spread awareness and get the conversation started
Incorporating work-life balance awareness into the work culture is important. Employees properly scheduling and taking time off and taking proper breaks within the work day is vital to your workers’ well being and productivity.
Provide helpful tips for staying healthy
Providing your organization with helpful tips such as easy lunch recipes or fitness challenges for employees to take part in will encourage healthy habits during busy workdays. While it’s easier to order takeout, encourage employees to maybe cook something healthy at home to bring in.
Encourage employees to take walking breaks
Encourage your employees to take little breaks during the day for a breath of fresh air and to add a little movement to their day. Just 10 – 15 minutes of walking can lead to improved moods, alleviated stress, and improved cardiovascular fitness. Not to mention the added benefits of boosting your immune system and energy as well as burning calories!
Advocating for the importance of overall health and wellbeing in the workplace will not only encourage employees to take the initiative to lead healthier lives but will also motivate them to continue to do their best at work.
